For those who don't know about it already.
This site is awesome, just zoom in and rotate the earth to where you want to go, then sit back and enjoy the awesomeness of the display.

Yes, but probably about 10 min. behind like most sat loops at it's most current, total update every 3 hours.

Iso, it will be interesting to see it when the gorge starts to blow again, you should be able to see a strong flow going straight up the gorge delineating the path of the river.

Wow, that's a stunning visualization. Tufte would be proud. It will be interesting to view this along with Mike Godsay's Bay Area blogs posts.

It is a WIND current map, not a WATER current map.
